The “Building a Freely Connected Physical and Digital Integrated World: 6G Services, Capabilities and Enabling Technologies” white paper by the vivo Communications Research Institute is the third in a series on 6G. Many experts believe that 6G will have a significant impact on people’s daily life well into the next century, and this research examines how it will do so.
“As one of the world’s leading smartphone vendors, we are dedicated to empowering consumers by making cutting-edge 5G smartphones affordable and accessible. At the same time, we have set our sights on the future i.e. 6G,” said Qin Fei, President of vivo Communications Research Institute. “At the forefront of R&D, we continue to explore what a 6G world might look like and what technologies we need to develop to get there.”
Over the last two years, the industry has progressively reached an agreement on the services that 6G could provide and the key capability indicators that must be met. The development of associated critical enabling technologies is also gaining traction. With in-depth study and evaluation of 6G business models and drivers, application scenarios, system design, and supporting technologies, the vivo Communications Research Institute has actively contributed to creating the future of 6G.
vivo’s latest white paper on 6G builds on two previous works published in 2020: ‘Digital Life 2030+,’ which provides insights into some of the many potential 6G digital scenarios for the next decade, and ‘6G Vision, Requirements, and Challenges,’ which outlines vivo’s vision for 6G, namely that 6G will enable convergence of the digital and physical worlds.
